Revell SMS Emden and SMS Dresden WWI Light Cruiser/Commerce Raider, 1/350, 05500

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: Sealed Exc

Sold   

Still factory sealed. Includes both ship models. From modern 2006 Revell of Germany molds. Very well detailed full hull kits with excellent detail. The story of Emden's Indian Ocean raiding career in WWI is legendary. The story of Dresden's short career in WWI also interesting. She was serving with the German East Asiatic Squadron; near the start of hostilities they made a voyage across the Pacific Ocean hoping to go around South America and return to Germany via the Atlantic. The squadron came across Sir Christopher Cradock's British Squadron in the South Pacific at Coronel. There the Germans won a great victory over Cradock; the problem was that now the Germans were sited and their intentions known. The British positioned battlecruisers at the Falkland islands in anticipation; they did not have long to wait. When the Germans were sighted, the British casually got ready then sailed, knowing their superior speed and gun range could make short work of the biggest ships the Germans had. The British were correct; the Germans were soundly defeated off the Falklands. However, the Dresden was the only German ship to survive. She went back around Cape Horn in the Pacific and successfully hid for several months, only to be eventually found near Mas a Tierra (Chile) by Glasgow and Kent. Knowing that escape was impossible, the Dresden was scuttled by her crew. The wreck still lies in the harbor today.

Plastic Model Kit,   Box Condition: VG

Sold   

Frog is well known for making realistic, detailed models at a time when most manufacturers were not making kits strictly to scale and embellishing kits with over-sized rivets. Frog, on the other hand, strived for scale fidelity and almost never showed rivet detail. This B-17E is no exception and is a fine kit that would built to a realistic display model. Decals are included for two historical aircraft - Suzy-Q, a very early Pacific Theater aircraft from 1942 flown by Captain Felix Hardison USAAC (this B-17 had no ball turret) and Yankee Doodle, the ship that General Ira C. Eaker flew in as an observer during the 8th Air Forces first bombing mission against the railway marshalling yards at Sottenville, near Rouen France on August 17, 1942. Kit has fine raised panel lines and features a full crew, optional position landing gear, elevating tail guns, rotating and elevating top and belly turrets with the blocking panel for Suzy-Q, opening bomb bay doors and bomb load and more. Never started. NOTE missing stand arm. The aircraft itself has been inventoried complete with all parts, 'excellent' decals and instructions.
